Barbara Muckermann profiled
Seatrade Cruise Review also profiles Barbara Muckermann, recently promoted to chief commercial officer at Silversea Cruises and someone Royal Caribbean Group EVP/CFO Jason Liberty considers a ‘total rock star’ with ‘the quality to be the president and CEO of a brand, for sure, maybe even go further than that, potentially corporate.’
